Today’s Stakes Pageantry: None today, and the NHL is now on break for its All-Star festivities. But Round 1 of the PGA event at La Jolla is set for today. The defending champion is your favorite half-Filipino golfer, Mistah Jason Day. Golf. We must be desperate now, to reach for the golf tourneys to fill this space. Golf is popular to take up in middle-age, but tennis is less problematic. If you’re like us and smell at tennis, you’re only pissing off one other person, three others at most. But if you smell at golf, you’re liable to enrage not only your playing partners, but a lot of foursomes behind you — and ahead of you, depending on the severity of your hook or slice, or the shambolic shakiness of your putter. In this regard, tennis is preferred over golf as the recreational activity to take up in middle-age — fewer potential scuffles.

Yesterday’s Activity:

Track (Win Mutuels $20+/Gettable)

Delta (2/1) — Opening-race upsetter Harvey’s Song top on Betting Line and OK on LifeLiner Speed Column analysis in a contentious race — hard to miss her.

Gulf (1/1) — Uh-oh. Candip won Race 4 at $24.80 while being a Dual Qualifier (including the top LifeLiner Spread Column analysis rating in the field). No tout forthcoming due to a seemingly strong other horse being top of the Betting Line in a noncontentious race.

Mahoning (0/0) — ‘Hot (Mess) in Cleveland’: Blatt out, Lue in (as All-Star Game coach, too, no less!), LeBron denying. Hoo-boy.

PennNat (1/1) — Another slam-dunker: contentious race (according to the Betting-Line dynamic), plus Sterlings Drama, Race 3 winner at $31.20, had 90s in both the LifeLiner Speed Column and LifeLiner Spread Column analyses. Not difficult, this time.

Tampa (1/0) — Jebrico Bushzales, Mark Rubie counting on something befalling Dawn J. Trump, Theo. Cruise; hey, even the immortal Dayjur jumped his shadow in the 1990 BC Sprint.

Turf Paradise (2/½) Nightcap upsetter was the top Betting Line horse (Fair Odds 4½-1) in a contentious race; no LifeLiner numbers in support, but the classical V6 was there. Uncertain, hence the ½ rating.

WMF Report:

Delta 6½f
Gulf 6f
Santa Anita 1m

Nocturnal Submission: Delta 7 (10:24 p.m. EST / 7:24 p.m. PST) has #8 Misty Haven as a viable chance-play. …

Thank you. Best wishes. Goodbye. Take care now.
